The surrounding setting is exquisite and the lovely people who manage the hostel have created a comfortable and friendly atmosphere; always happy to answer questions and have a chat, they are accommodating and seek to look after all their guests. I had a good time here and will be returning again. Thanks Elterwater Hostel!
My second stay at this lovely hostel. Peaceful place with lovely staff and tasty food. Highly recommend. A good resting point after a long day in the hills. Hot water thermos in the lounge is a nice touch.
Great to be back at Elterwater hostel during our family walking holiday this week. Welcome was as warm as we remembered and great to see Andy again. The whole hostel was spotless as usual and real thought had been put into the Covid procedures and how to make us feel comfortable. We had delicious meals for dinner and breakfast. We’ll be back again soon! Thanks to all the lovely team.
This was my first visit to a youth hostel for twenty years... and what a pleasant surprise! The building is situated in a stunning part of the Lake District, with a range of walks for all abilities available from the front door. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean, and there’s a great communal eating/socialising area and well-equipped kitchen. Rooms also come with free WiFi and USB charging ports. Excellent value for money.
Totally idillic setting with all the amenities and comforts you could want to explore the area. Can't get enough of watching the sunrise from the steps of the hostel whilst eating breakfast! A large group of us rent out the hostel every year for a weekend of cathups, jaunts on the hills and of course a few drinks in the nearby Brittania Inn. The hostel always exceeds expectations and offers a comfy bed after a long day in the hills. I even noticed this year that they have installed an E-car charging station!! Really looking forward to my next visit!
